Today was very hot so decided to just go to the beach. Didn't manage to stay on the beach for very long as it was too hot and the flies are a nightmare - there are millions of them in Perth and they go up your nose in your ears (just everywhere!) We did go for a swim in the sea which was very cold initially but was ok once we were in and there were no flies. When we got back to Christians he told us that the island just off Perth had closed all its beaches as two sharks had been spotted off shore (think I might just give the beach a miss tomorrow!) Went to watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean this evening which we managed to miss but it was still spectacular even after the sun had gone down.
